C10H18N2O3, Mr = 214.27, monoclinic, P2(1), a = 15.515 (2), b = 6.730 (1), c = 12.541 (2) A, beta = 113.6 (2) degrees, V = 1200.0 A3, Z = 4, Dx = 1.186 g cm-3, lambda(Mo K alpha) = 0.71069 A, mu = 0.54 cm-1, F(000) = 464, T = 295 K. The final R value for 1611 observed (3139 unique) reflections is 0.055. In both the independent molecules A and B of the asymmetric unit of the title compound, the conformation of the urethane moiety is trans. The lactam group of molecule A is non-planar, the C(9)-N(2)-C(10)-C(6) torsion angle being 12.4 (14) degrees. One main difference between molecules A and B is in the value of the phi[C(5)-N(1)-C(6)-C(10)] torsion angle [52.3 (11) degrees for molecule A while -86.5 (10) degrees for molecule B] as a consequence of a rotation of the ring relative to the tert-butyloxycarbonylamino substituent. A second major difference is the delta-lactam ring conformation which is approximate half-chair for molecule A while boat for molecule B.
